Non-subscription version of 1Password now permanently broken in Chrome 99

about 2 months ago by IanDorfman

As of the version 99.0.4844.74 stable release of Google Chrome, the non-subscription-based version of the 1Password password management extension no longer functions.

1Password has transitioned to a subscription only model as of its version 8 release back in August of 2021. However, standalone locally hosted instances that were already purchased were still usable. As of the version 99 release of Google Chrome, this is no longer the case.

In a post on the official 1Password Support Community, 1Password Team Member Joy confirmed that this break in functionality was due to a change in Small Google Chrome iconGoogle Chrome 's code signature. Joy also confirms that this will not be corrected, as 1Password version 6 has been discontinued since 2018.

"To continue using 1Password in Chrome, my best recommendation is to upgrade to 1Password 7 through a membership," states Joy. The company seems to be offering a 50% off for 3 years discount for those with 1Password licenses migrating to a subscription plan to continue using the extension. Other than that, standard 1Password license pricing for personal and family use can be found at
